Matthew Perry revealed a disastrous date with Cameron Diaz ended in him getting hit in the face

The Friends star revealed that he was set up on a group date with Cameron in 2007, three years after the sitcom came to an end and shortly after her split from ex-boyfriend Justin Timberlake.

Unfortunately for Matthew, it seems the Charlie’s Angels star “wasn’t interested in [him] at all”, with things taking an even more disastrous turn during a game of Pictionary.

After Matthew made a joke to Cameron in the middle of the game, she went to playfully tap him on the shoulder, only to end up missing and mistakenly catching his face instead.

“Are you fucking kidding me?” Matthew recalled asking his date after the gaffe.

Awks.

Judge Rinder and Harry Styles

The TV judge recalled: “Nobody looks at anyone at my gym, so I just thought there was a homeless girl running next to me. And then I had a moment of epiphany: it was Harry Styles.

“He’s evolved into a real artist, so when I subsequently saw him I got strangely starstruck. We ended up involved in a conversation and all I will say was that it was the worst social car crash ever.

“He hugged me because he needed to make it stop. It was like an act of social euthanasia.”
